A Year in Review - Katelyn

DT Member Pam surprised me with a blog project she was working on to review her year with the Emerald Creek Design Team. Her inspiration and gift created an awesome idea for our entire team. As we wrap up the season and prepare for the new year and new releases, we pause to highlight each of our designers and all of the inspiring and incredible work they did for me.

Cathy, Katelyn, Shilpa, Claudia, Pam, Sara, Jessica, Heather, Deb and Cassandra, I cannot send enough hugs, packages or words to express the gratitude I have for each of you. And the same heart felt love and admiration is also felt for the past members Julia, Diana and Karon and my social media teacher and guide, Nicole Wright. You all encouraged, assisted and supported me during this year of amazing growth, direction and focus. As a team, and as individuals, we grew beyond teammates and co-workers to become great friends and family.

Thank you for an amazing 2016.

Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and have a wonderful New Year in 2017!

Love you all, 

Leading us off will be Katelyn. After 15 wonderful months of working with us, Katelyn's final post as a regular designer will be in January. She will still pop by for a quarterly post, but don't forget to follow her blog, here at Emerald Creek, on the Southern Ridge Design Team and the Graphic 45 DT.


Wow, it's hard to believe that this year has almost come to an end and 2017 is right around the corner. I want to wish you all a very Merry Christmas! I've had the pleasure of being apart of the design team with Emerald Creek for just over a year now and it has truly been a fabulous and inspiring team to work with! You ladies are awesome!! And I can't forget about our fearless leader Kim who has put her heart and soul into producing fantastic products for the design team as well as you the consumer. Kim, you are an amazing and inspiring woman and I can't wait to see what 2017 holds for you!

Today, I'm excited as I get to share with you a recap of all the projects I've done for Emerald Creek Dares over the 2016 year. I hope that my projects will inspire you to create during the rest of the holiday season. To find out more details and a tutorial for each of the projects, just click on the link above the photo. 

January - We Are on Our Way

I hope that you've enjoyed seeing all of my projects from 2016! We can't wait to see you at CHA as well as what you create in the 2017 year featuring Emerald Creek Products and once you've created a project, you'll want to make sure to enter it into our monthly dares challenge each month. Thanks for taking the time to visit the links and learn more about each of my projects.  I hope you have a wonderful holiday season with loved ones and friends! Happy New Year!

Thank you Katelyn, I am so excited for CHA and to work with  you in new roles as you continue to grow in your own roles and desired future!

  3. Katelyn, it has been such a pleasure working with you on Emerald Creek's DT! Your work is inspiring, and you have brought such a diverse group of projects to us this year! I love how you chose to do an industrial/steampunk design for the Anything Goes--my favorite of yours! You have been so helpful to me in getting me oriented to the team, and I'm grateful for that. I will so miss you on the team! Wishing you all the best in your future endeavors and for a healthy, crafty and Happy New Year!
